Required cPanel,MySQL Administration,PHP,Website Development,Wordpress freelancer for Develop Backup Solution for Server job

Posted at - Nov 21, 2023

Toogit Instant Connect Enabled

I have a hosting account.
It's a shared server with about 50Gb of data across 3 websites - 2 Wordpress and one Joomla.
There's usually at least one person working on one of the sites on any day - myself and no more than one developer.
Too often, a developer stuffs something up, putting one or more of the sites offline, or causing a breach of policy with Hosting, or some other malfunction.
Sometimes hosting themselves update something without telling me, which breaks some part of a site.

I need a workable backup and restore solution.

I want to be able to restore the whole server to it's previous working state, without losing any of my pages or images that I may have uploaded in the time between backing up the server and detecting the fault.
I have only a small amount of technical knowledge - copy, paste, transfer, apply formatting.
I have no way of knowing who has done what to my server, except if their work achieves the result or doesn't.
Sometimes a developer improves one feature at the expense of something else.
Anyway, I've been caught too many times with sites going offline and no way to restore them quickly.
Right now I'm experimenting with rsync, whereby I download the entire server to a folder called Server-Backup-Previous.
Tomorrow I download the entire server again to a folder called Server-Backup-Latest.
Supposing a fault has developed since yesterday, I compare both folders with Goodsync to see what has changed.
If it's only one or two files I can easily upload the originals, or delete the new ones, or restore the missings.
However if there are dozens of variations, I'm in the shit.

I'm aware of Cpanel's Server Rewind feature, but do I choose files + database restore or just files? I could make a situation more complicated and worse.

Do you have something that you could set up for me and show me how to use?
